I don’t know about you but this constant chop and change in the ‘summer’ weather throws me and my wardrobe into a sweaty spin. Since having kids I seem to heat up faster than a heat seeking missile if I have too many layers on. So, when the warmer weather finally arrives I love not having to wear a big jacket, but as we all know, you can’t trust the good old British weather, so having a little summer jacket you can throw on in a down poor is a must!
There are a few ways to wear a light weight jacket this season, here are my top four.
The Trophy Jacket – Big, bold, embroidered or embellished. It’s nothing new, but they just seem to get better and better. Buy wisely and you’ll have a gorgeous little number that will see you through season after season.
The Denim Jacket – Denim is just keeps going from strength to strength. A staple that you can layer up or down, keep clean and simple or use it to tap into more of the seasons’ big trends.
The Shaket – Yep, you know, the hybrid of a jacket and shirt and what’s not to love about a little bit of khaki. One of the easiest and chicest ways to wear a summer jacket with a subtle nod to military styling.
The Leather Biker – No jacket round up is complete without the leather biker. If you normally keep yours to the confines of your winter wardrobe DON’T, or if you’re feeling brave, now is the time branch out into brights or pastel colours.

Looking at that gorgeous lot I think I’ll now be adding more than one to my summer wardrobe! If you have a bit of cash to splash it’s definitely worth investing in a leather. I’m loving the lighter, brighter hues hitting the high street at the mo, but whatever your budget here are some of my favs from all four styles, just waiting to be swung over your shoulders.
